Important Information Regarding Tropical Low 05U (Cyclone Kirrily)

NIS Cyclone Warning and Checklist

As Tropical Low 05U (To be named Tropical Cyclone Kirrily) moves towards the Queensland Coast, we want to ensure our customers that the Northern Insurance Solutions team are here and ready to support you.

Cyclones are severe weather events that can cause significant damage to property.  As your insurance broker, our priority is your safety. We urge you to take all necessary precautions to keep yourself and your family out of harm’s way during a cyclone.

Preparing for a Cyclone

Before a cyclone hits, it is important to have a safety plan in place. This includes knowing your local evacuation routes and having an emergency kit stocked with essential items such as water, non-perishable food, flashlights, and first aid supplies.

It is also crucial to secure your property by trimming trees and removing any loose objects that could become potential hazards during high winds.

After the Cyclone

Once the cyclone has passed, do not go outside until local authorities have declared it safe to do so. Be aware of potential hazards such as downed power lines and avoid using electrical equipment until it has been checked for damage.

If your property has been damaged, it is important to ensure the following steps are taken as soon as possible:

  • Take Photos and Record Details – Prior to cleaning up, take photos and/or videos of any damage to your property and contents ensuring to record serial numbers of any electronic devices.
  • Make Safe – Ensure that any urgent repairs are carried out to keep your property secure and prevent further damage. Keep receipts for any emergency repairs as these may be reimbursable by your insurance company.

Our claims team will be ready to assist you with any enquiries and help you lodge a claim. We are committed to providing quick and expert support to ensure that you receive the assistance you need.

Our team can be contacted on 07 4783 1310 if you have a question about your insurance policy.
